In a cotton-farming village in Sudan, 15-year-old Nafisa has a crush on Babiker, but her parents have arranged her marriage to Nadir, a young Sudanese businessman living abroad.

In the suspended time and space of a Doha traffic jam, a random group of people create a temporary urban society through subconscious communication.

These are the basic ideas behind two of Suzannah Mirghani's beautiful, haunting films. The filmmaker is quickly making a name for herself and she proves here that she's equally as comfortable telling a completely narrative story as well as one that employs documentary techniques to bring the viewer into the collective subconscious of a city, a country, a whole Region even.

We are excited to team up with Soleil Space on this live streaming screening of the two films, Al-Sit and Caravan, by the Doha based filmmaker. Soleil is a wonderful women-run company that shines the spotlight on all cultural efforts from the Global South. A partnership in showcasing the talent overflowing from the MENA was a natural for us at MIME.

Mirghani is now working on her feature debut Cotton Queen, which promises to be spellbinding.

To watch, click on this link and follow the screening, free and live on YouTube. The two films will be followed by an insightful Q & A conducted by Micha Cooper-Edwards, Soleil Space's CEO.

Tune in on Saturday, September 17th, at 12 p.m. EST, 5 p.m. London Time and 7 p.m. Saudi Time and don't be left out!
